Commission has angry exchange


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
There really wasn't much on the
county commission's agenda last
week that was especially controver-
sial. That didn't mean, however, that
there wasn't room for some political
theatre amid cries that other board
members were trying to silence him
by moving a presentation to the
end of the meeting, Commissioner
Howard Kessler went ahead during
a recess when other commissioners
were absent and gave his presenta-


tion for the cable TV audience.
And, when the matter came up on
the agenda later in the evening, he
gave his presentation a second time
- even as two commissioners walked
out of the meeting, saying they
weren't going to sit through it.
The meeting, held Tuesday, Sept.
2, moved a day because of the Labor
Day holiday, got off to shaky start


when Chairman Ed Brimner said he
wanted to move Kessler's PowerPoint
from the "Awards and Presentations"
portion of the agenda to "Commis-
sioner Agenda Items" or "Discussion
Items." Brimner indicated as well
that it was his intention to declare
a recess (though he referred to it as
an "adjournment") so that board
members could go over to the First


Baptist Church for the reception for
the family of Houston Taff.
Taff, an alligator trapper and local
sports booster and member of the
prominent Taff family, died Saturday,
Aug. 30. He was the uncle of Com-
missioner Maxie Lawhon.
Kessler supporters in the audience
reacted with disgust at his items be-
ing moved and the hour-long recess,


with much murmuring amongst
themselves about the other board
members trying to silence him.
During the recess, after Lawhon
and commissioners George Green
and Brian Langston left, Kessler
was moved by his supporters to
go ahead and give his comments
against the proposed moratorium
on impact fees, which was set for a
vote and a special meeting on Tues-
day, Sept. 9.

cal Storm
Fay waiving some fees for
repairs, approving an appli-
cation for jobs cleaning up
debris through Workforce Plus,
and paying overtime for some
administrative staff.
In a split vote, the board
also voted to accept debris
from Hurricane Gustav with-
out charging landfill fees.
The board took action at
the commission meeting on
Tuesday, Sept. 2.
The resolution to waive
planning department fees
is for repair work related to
storm damage from Tropical
Storm Fay which hit the coun-
ty on Aug. 23. The waiver will
be allowed for three months.
Citizens seeking the waiver
must apply to the planning
department for a development
permit application for storm
damage; the building depart-
ment will inspect the damage
to verify the damage is storm-
related; then the planning
and zoning staff will issue the
permit for the repairs without
being charged fees.
The board approved the
application for a National
Emergency Grant by Workforce
Plus, with the intention of
creating short-term jobs clear-
ing debris on public property
and lands caused by Tropical
Storm Fay.
Workforce Plus CEO Kim-
berly Moore appeared at the
meeting and noted that Wakul-
la, Gadsderi and Leon county
commissions were all meeting
to approve the job program.

N.G. Wade

vote date

altered
By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
The N.G. Wade sustainable
community in the northeast-
ern part of the county will
be given a special timetable
for approval that would have
the current members of the
county commission vote on
the issue before three new
board members are installed.
Chairman Ed Brimner
brought up the issue at the
commission meeting on Tues-
day, Sept. 2, saying he was
using his authority as chair-
man to adjust, the hearing
schedule, sothat the. ",Long-..
leaf" Planned Unit Develop-
ment proposed by N.G. Wade
would go before the planning
commission on Oct. 13, then
the county commission for a
hearing on Oct. 20 and a final
vote on Nov. 3.
The usual schedule for
such hearings would take
three months: a hearing be-
fore the planning commission
in month one, then it would
be heard at the first county
commission meeting of the
next month, and taken up
for a final vote the following
month.

County commissioners
planned to take up a proposal
to stop collecting impact fees
at a public hearing scheduled
after their budget hearing on
Tuesday, Sept. 9.
Opponents hired a local at-
torney, who issued a letter to
the county on &M6niday, Sept.
8, challenging the legality of
the vote and whether it had
been properly noticed.

Historical Society hopes to save cemeteries


By MADELEINE H. CARE
Special to The Wakulla News
Getting from South Carolina
to Philadelphia would have
been almost impossible when
Sam Richardson was 10 years
old in 1801. Even on a good
horse and carriage the young
boy might have been traveling
at a very slow pace, about three
or four miles an hour.
Today, he has a cemetery
named for him right here in
Wakulla County. It is one of the
county's two pre-Civil War cem-
eteries. The other one would be


what remains of the Magnolia
Cemetery north of Newport,
established in the 1820s.
The Richardson Cemetery is
a large burial plot with dozens
of graves, according to David
Roddenberry. Roddenberry,
along with John E. Roberts
and Cal Jamison, began "tak-
ing care" of the cemeteries in
1991.
Additionally, as part of the
Wakulla County Historical
Society efforts, Roddenberry
and Roberts have created a
comprehensive recording of


all known sites with descrip-
tions available online at the
rootsweb site.
About 10 years ago, rumors
began to spread that the Rich-
ardson Cemetery plots were
being destroyed. Developers
were bulldozing the western
edge of these ancient plots
and Betty Green, President of
the Wakulla County Historical
Society, finally acquired the
property at a tax sale, saving
the remaining graves from
further disturbance.

Comment & Opinion

Established in Wakulla County in 1895


Frances goes to the

Hall: House Cat Taff

leaves his mark


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
There is always a little
more joy in the newspaper
business when you get to
do a "fun" story. I classify
"fun" stories as features that
give you a chance to write
about somebody who truly
deserves to be recognized.
I had one of those stories
recently. It involved River-
springs Middle School Coach
Frances Knight. I would also
classify her under the "good
guy" category.
I had an opportunity to
work with Frances during
her time at Wakulla Middle
School and always thought
highly of her professional-
ism and methods of han-
dling Wakulla County young
people.
Back in the early 1990s,
the State of Florida forced
the county to convert from
slow pitch girls softball to
fast pitch in each school.
Wakulla Middle School
made the conversion at the
same time as Wakulla High
School.
Frances was coaching a
group of players at WMS
who played on a traveling
team that was organized by
some dedicated folks who
included Walter Dodson,
and Daryl Langston and his
wife, Tina. I was fortunate to
coach those girls as well.
Frances asked me to help
out with the coaching when
I could since she was not as
familiar with the fast pitch
game.
It was a wonderful expe-
rience as the Lady Wildcats
lost only one game that sea-
son. It also paved the way
for Jri Jump to have great
success with the team after
Frinces moved on.
FAMU selected Frances
to their Hall of Fame as you
may have noticed from the
front page piece in this is-
sue. I could not be happier
foi Frances since she is very
deserving and has had a
few sad bumps in her life to
overcome, such as the loss
of her husband.
Congratulations Frances.
Somehow I expected that
her daughter, Dwan, would
go into the education profes-
sion. I am sure she is making
life more rewarding for her
students in Chattahoochee.
A few other ideas I have
been trying to get down on
paper:
The Caribbean storm
season is taking all the fun
out of the summer months.
It isn't as fun to watch foot-
ball in the fall with only one
eye. it is hard to reserve the
other eye for the weather
web sites. If you are lis-
tening Ike, go west young
manl,
This week we have
the Chamber of Commerce
special section in the news-


paper for our readers. There
is a special story from Jacki
Youngstrand about Gretchen
Evans and the history of the
family canoe rental. It was
fun reading and I am sure ev-
eryone who knew Gretchen
will enjoy it.
When the two new
motels were built in Wakulla
County, ownership was hop-
ing for customers to fill
their rooms. Thanks to hur-
ricane season, we have seen
visitors from Louisiana. It
is a flashback to Hurricane
Katrina.
My friend Helen Vaughn
in Panacea sent me a letter
to thle editor regarding mos-
quitges this week. I liked
her letter and printed it.
She even sent me two large
dead mosquitoes taped to
the letter. Her method of
mosquito control is slow,
but effective.
I am hoping to do more
withi the Lady War Eagle
volleyball team this fall.
We have made an effort to
reach out to the high school
and ,hope to run pictures of
players as well as results.
So far...zipl If you are a vol-
leyb11 parent please help
us-,out and get us some
information. Thank you in
advance.
ad Finally, the funeral for
Houston Taff was well at-
tend id last week. I always
found t Houston to be a true
Wak llan. He was always
friendly toward me and oth-
ers. WVe coached against each
other about 20 years ago
whea we both had family
me bers playing in an adult
ladi s softball league.
It was always fun to
mat h wits with Houston. I
am pleased that Scott Gaby
talked to us about doing a
feat re on the 40th anni-
vers ry of the Wakulla High
Sch ol Rebel baseball team
whi e Houston was still able
to s are it with his players.
T e turnout at the school
boa d meeting to recognize
Ho ston was amazing as
nea ly all of the living play-
ers from the 1968 team at-
ten ed the meeting. It was a
tru testament to the person
an coach he was.
e'll miss you, Houstonl

Wakulla County Commis-
sion Chairman Ed Brimner
takes credit for re-writing the
county's procedures for mak-
ing public records requests,
making it easier for citizens
to get information on their
government.
The past requirement of
making a written request and
then having it reviewed by the
county attorney was blatant in
its intention to dissuade the
public from seeing records
and stalling requests.
Brimner does deserve some
credit for getting rid of that
policy and, along with County
Administrator Ben Pingree,
working to create a public
records policy that reflects
both the letter and spirit of


the state law,
But the chairman has ex-
hibited by his actions that
he believes his own records
- his e-mails especially are
somehow exempt from public
scrutiny.
Brimner, more than any
other commissioner before
him, has used the Internet
to get information out to the
public. His e-mails frequently
contain useful notices, re-
minders of events, or his own
exhortations to support local
businesses, sports teams, and
the like.
But Brimner has also shown
a disturbing lack of complying
with records requests.
Last year, citizen Hugh Tay-
lor spent months waiting for


County needs to plan


Editor, The News:
Recent rains in Crawfordville
have once again shown the lack
of planning our county is becom-
ing known for. Our home on
Rehwinkel Road now has a yard
that's four feet deep in water.
Why? Because an entire subdivi-
sion was built behind our house
on a watershed with no plans for
the stormwater run-off.
Why does our county not
have residential stormwater
ponds like our neighbors in
Leon County? To make matters
worse, the county also approved
the lots to the side of our home
to be filled in with massive
amounts of fill dirt so the owner
could build homes.
That area has always been a
natural wetland where all the
water from the watershed to
the north, where the sub-divyi-
sion is now, always flowed. The
results were predictable. The
natural flow of water has been
rerouted, with the approval of
Wakulla County, directly onto
our property destroying its value
and use.
We have gone to the Wakulla
County Commissioners regard-
ing our situation. We have talked
to commissioners individually.
We have been to a county com-
missioner's meeting. A county


Letters


commissioner has been to our
home. We were told it would
be fixed.
Two years later and it's still
not fixed. We have never been
required in thepast to have flood
insumance. Now; wjth'this situa-
tion, we have to spend $2,000. a
year for flood insurance.
With no obvious solutions
forthcoming from our county,
our options for a resolution are
very limited. As with most situa-
tions, little or no planning is not
an excuse for poor performance.
Especially from our county gov-
ernment

Carter ideas are innovative


Editor, The Newss
The Democratic National
Convention is over now. All the
lights in that grand stadium have
gone dark. All the confetti has
been swept up. But for those of
us who watched Barack Obama
sail through a cross-current of
history on Aug. 28, either from
the field or glued to our TV sets,
the transcendent moment is just
beginning.
I spent the week in Denver
as a Florida alternate delegate
pledged to Sen. Hillary Clinton.
In spite of what the pundits
would have you believe, most
Clinton supporters were pre-
pared to applaud Clinton for her
campaign, and support Obama
as the next president of the Unit-
ed States. Everyone seemed to
agree that Obama's incompara-
ble oratory and brilliant policies
illuminate America's path into
a new era. Thirty-eight million
people watched his acceptance
speech, and I believe that's 38
million votes he'll have on Nov.
4. On Invesco Field, you could
feel the surge of inspiration in
the crowd.
The convention was quite a
production, with speeches every
night of the week, from elected
officials whose names we won't
soon be forgetting.
Sen. Jim Leach of Iowa, a
life-long Republican, spoke elo-
quently about why he will sup-
port Obama for the presidency.
His speech emphasized the
bi-partisan tone that has perme-
ated Obama's campaign, which
gives so many of us hope things
will be different.
More than anything else, the
convention made me believe
in American politics again. In
three sentences, Obama ar-
ticulated solutions to the most
divisive social problems of our
day abortion, gun control and
same-sex marriage. Yes, we can
agree that criminals shouldn't


have AK-47s, and that we should
work toward fewer unwanted
pregnancies. Achieving goals
can be as simple as finding that
common ground.
When I received my Bache-
lor's degree in journalism from
the University of Florida four
years ago, I could not have imag-
ined how exciting it could be
to be a journalist in times such
as these. From a brief stint at
The Wakulla News when I was
in college to my work now at
a religious non-profit, political
culture just keeps getting more
interesting,
My mother, Andrea Carter, is
running for Superintendent of
Wakulla County Schools. Her
innovative ideas for the school
district flow with the wave of
progressive change that moved
through that stadium on Aug. 28.
My mother doesn't fit into a neat
partisan category. She is a fiscal
conservative (which, I might
add, is a great qualification for
an elected office,with a tight
budget). Like most Americans,
she's always voted her con-
science above party affiliation.
She and my dad whole-heartedly
supported my attendance at the
convention, and she is as excited
as I am about the new political
rhetoric buzzing around.
The national pulse is on
a new day dawning, and my
mother represents that change,
with her commitment to world-
class schools for our students
and support for the best, most
diverse pool of teachers Wakulla
County can find. It's not a parti-
san issue it's a past versus fu-
ture issue, Wakulla County can
keep doing more of the same,
or it can improve the education
it offers and move into the 21st
century. If Wakulla is. ready to
get moving, my mom is ready
to go,

Brimner to release e-mails he
requested. Brimner responded
by making a rather frivolous
requirement that Taylor pay
hundreds of dollars for the
time it would take him to
compile the e-mails that Tay-
lor asked for. The chairman
also claimed that a previous
request by Taylor for the ad-
dresses of those who receive
his e-mail newsletters, re-
sulted in Taylor using those
addresses to send out an e-
mail that was sharply critical
of Brimner.
Brimner characterized sub-
sequent requests by Taylor as
"fishing expeditions" to search
for information that could be
used to embarrass him.
Most recently, citizen Karla


Brandt chastised Brimner at
the county commission meet-
ing on Sept. 2 for failing to
answer her records request
for the "Undisclosed Recipi-
ents" in the address line of
his e-mails. She also claimed
to possess an e-mail in which
Brimner admitted to using his
personal laptop in order to
avoid having to comply with
public records law.
If true, it shows a callous
and arrogant attitude by Brim-
ner that would appear to be a
willful violation of the law.
Brimner's actions also fuel
continued speculation by
members of the public that he
is hiding something.

munity we are blessed to

Volunteering makes

you feel good!


Editor, The News:
On Sept. 6,Volunteer-
Wakulla held a very suc-
cessful volunteer fair and its
first annual cookie bake-off.
The volunteers assigned to
the bake-off were as excited
for the contestants as they
were to enter. All four of the
judges said they had a very
good time and really enjoyed
the experience. More than
20 booths filled the County
Extension Office's rooms
with opportunities to serve,
sustain and unite in their pas-
sion to stand up in support of
one another. It was a positive
day for all who participated.
Volunteerism is the act of
offering oneself for service
without legal concern or


Letters


interest. It is an act of one's
own free will. Sadly, it's often
the same people seen at these
gatherings. A broad spectrum
of services thrive on volun-
teer support and is so diverse
there is something to interest
almost everyone. Everyone
has something to offer, re-
gardless of how busy their
lives seem to have become.
The reward is not solely to
the recipient. The reward is
mainly to the giver. The more
involved one becomes, the
more apparent that reward
turns out to be. The opportu-
nities are limitless, the genu-
ine friendliness is heartwarm-
ing, and the sheer generosity
of folks often surprising.
You may ask yourself,
"Why bother?" The answer
is because it makes you feel
good! You will make a differ-
ence in the lives of others in
the community where you
live. You may also ask, "What
can I do, my time is limited."
I remind myself when I feel
busy, of a favorite saying,
"Many are called, but few
stand up." Let's change this
Let's do better Stand up, you
county Let's make Wakulla
County better than ever. Look
for and come to our next
event and find something
that interests you. You won't
be disappointed.

Thank you to Wakulla

Editor, The News:
It has been my honor to serve you as Clerk of Court over
the last 12 years. Thank you for the confidence you entrusted
in me to serve you with another four year term.
I pledge to you to do my best to serve you as Clerk in an ef-
ficient, impartial, objective, and professional manner. I want to
thank my staff for their work in taking us this far and together
we pledge to strive in providing excellent public service.
I look forward to the next four years and ask you to share
your thoughts and concerns with me (bxt@wakullaclerk.com)
as we work to make this office one you can continue to be
proud of.
Brent X. Thurmond
Clerk of Court
Wakulla County

Amendments were helpful
Editor, The News:
Thank you so much for printing the amendments, (Aug.
28 issue of The Wakulla News). That will really help me to
make an informed decision on how to vote. The summaries
are often misleading and the marketing hype is unbeliev-
able. It's nice to be able to read them for myself and you
made that easy.

Editor's Note: The Florida Supreme Court dropped Amend-
ments 5, 7 and 9 from the Nov. 4 ballot.


Creel has supported

our law enforcement


Editor, The Newss
I am writing to express
my support for Charlie Creel
for sheriff. I first met Charlie
when I started working for the
Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice in 1999 as a corrections of-
ficer.; In November 1999, I was
transferred to the road patrol
division as a deputy sheriff. In
this capacity I regularly came
into contact with Charlie who
was a state trooper assigned to
Wakulla County.
I quickly came to respect
and admire Charlie as a per-
son and as a law enforcement
officer. I worked with him at
many traffic crash scenes and
saw him handle difficult situ-
ations with ease. His outgoing
personality and many years
of experience contributed
greatly in his ability to perform
his job. As a young deputy I
learned that I could count on
Charlie for sound advice about
the law and how to properly
apply it,
My support for Charlie
Creel also stems from my ex-
periences while employed at
the Wakulla County Sheriff's
Office. When I became a road
patrol deputy I intended to
perform my job as I had been
trained to do in the police
academy. It didn't take me
long to see that my training
had not prepared me for what
I would encounter as,a Wakulla
County deputy. For the next
two years and ten months,
I went through an intensive
course in "Harvey Law."
I learned that instead of
using Florida Statutes to de-
termine how a complaint was
handled, one had to consider
factors such as the last name,
wealth, social standing, etc.
of the parties involved. I was
discouraged from making DUI
arrests and was once told by a
captain that I was entrapping
people because I made arrests
near bars. On two separate oc-
casions I was about to arrest
a woman on an outstanding
warrant and was advised by
the sheriff to let her go. On
numerous, occasions I'saww
criminal arrest warrants' itithe
drawer that were marked, "Do
not serve per the sheriff."
I was once made to apolo-
gize to a business owner be-
cause I gave him a verbal warn-
ing about illegal burning. On
another occasion I and another
deputy were ordered to leave
a shooting complaint because
of a "mandatory meeting" that
was about to be held at the
sheriff's office. When we ar-
rived at the "mandatory meet-

Citizens upset about

drainage, e-mails


By WILLIAM SNOWDEN
wsnowden@thewakullanews.net
Resident Melody Cooley
complained to county commis-
sioners last week that there
was four feet of water in her
yard because of a subdivision
they allowed to built around
her home.
She told commissioners that
the developer of the subdivi-
sion brought in 40 truckloads
of dirt to fill the low-lying area
to construct homes.
Heavy rains from Tropical
Storm Fay left the water with
no place to go except her yard,
Cooley said.
Commissioners do not re-
spond to statements made dur-
ing the "Citizens Comments"
portion of the meeting, and
they said nothing to Cooley.
One citizen comment,
from Wakulla Gardens resident
Ken Gooding, did get a response
from Chairman Ed Brimner
- hours after it was said.
Gooding complained that
his homeowners insurance
was cancelled because he is
more than five miles from a fire
station. He suggested that the
county could solve this problem
by creating a fire substation at
the landfill.
At the end of the meeting,
Brimner commented that he
felt there were ways to get ad-
ditional firefighting equipment
and open a substation. It led
Brimner to add that there is also
a way to fund improvements
for neighborhoods like Wakulla
Gardens.
"We consistently spend
money to expand infrastruc-
ture," Brimner said, "it just
happens to be in expensive
neighborhoods." He accused
the board of having a double-
standard, saying that the county
paved all the roads in Oyster
Bay in the past year, but has
done nothing for the residents
of Wakulla Gardens, Magnolia
Gardens, Greiner's Addition, or
Lake Ellen Estates.
"It's unconscionable that this

board continues to refuse to do
anything," he said.
Brimner has pushed for
some sort of tax increment
financing that would pay for
infrastructure and cosmetic,
improvements to those neigh-
borhoods. The issue of finding
financing for the project was
given to county staff and the
Citizens Advisory Committee
on Infrastructure, who met for
months to discuss options and
what was needed. When the
report was issued last month,
Brimner rejected the commit-
tee's recommendation that the
county impose a Municipal
Services Benefit Unit on prop-
erty tax bills for those residents
to pay for the improvements.
Brimner criticized the commit-
tee, saying they wanted to put
the cost on those residents who
could least afford it.
Citizen Karla Brandt ac-
cused Brimner of trying to cir-
cumvent public records law by
failing to turn over the names
and addresses of those people
who receive the chairman's
frequent e-mail "newsletters."
Those notes are typically ad-
dressed to "Undisclosed Re-
cipients."
Brandt claimed Brimner had
not responded to her request
and claimed to have a copy of
an e-mail from Brimner to some-
one else in which he allegedly
wrote: "I am now using my per-
sonal computer so I won't have
to answer frivolous requests" to
see his e-mails.
Brandt initially made her
request for the name in March,
as well as for e-mails related to
county business. In April, she
said, Brimner supplied her with
30 e-mails but not the address-
es. In July, she re-submitted her
request, but said she has had no
response from Brimner since.

Cleanup-

Continued from Page 1A
According to a staff report,
there is $500,000 available
for the program in the three-
county area.
The issue of overtime for
county administrative employ-
ees created some discussion
over which employees would
be affected. County Admin-
istrator Ben Pingree said the
overtime was strictly for those
county employees who are
usually given compensation
time rather than overtime
pay.
He said it specifically relat-
ed to county staff who spent
time at the Emergency Opera-
tions Center coordinating the
local response to the storm.
Pingree said that paying the
overtime would make it easier
to get other FEMA funds.
As for storm debris from
Hurricane Gustav, Commis-
sioner Howard Kessler noted
that many residents on Surf
Road in the Ochlockonee Bay
area had cleaned up the straw-
like debris that was in their
yards after the storm surge
brought flooding to that area
over the Labor Day weekend.
Much of the debris had been
taken out to the road right-
of-way pickup, apparently
with the assumption that the
county would take it.
Commissioner Maxie
Lawhon noted that, while the
county had received funding
to pick up storm debris after


Cemeteries


Hurricane Dennis is 2005,
there is no money for cleanup
from Hurricane Gustav. Rather,
he said, residents in that area
have assumed the county will
pick it up again.
Saying he suffers flooding
when the Sopchoppy River
rises, Lawhon commented
that the county doesn't come
out and pick up the debris he
rakes from his yard. He said he
burns it himself.
"If they're going to go to
all the trouble to rake it up,
why don't they just burn it?"
Lawhon asked.
"I think I'm going to be
voting against it," Chairman
Ed Brimner said, explaining:
"If you live along the coast
you have to expect some
flooding."
Kessler contended the piles
of debris were becoming an
eyesore, which other board
members agreed.
The matter of pickup,
though, led to concern that
some residents would take
advantage of it to put out
washers and dryers and other
items that properly should be
taken to the landfill by resi-
dents with tipping fees paid
to dump it.
As a bit of a compromise,
the board voted 3-2 for the
landfill to accept storm debris
- and only the seaweed and
seagrass debris without
charging tipping fees.

Just how did Sam Richardson
arrive in Wakulla County in the
1820s? Why would a man born
during the year the Bill of Rights
was ratified in 1791 make his
home here?
His gravestone gives us a
small clue. In addition to his
birth and death dates in 1859
at age 68, the gravestone tells
us that he was a veteran. Rich-
ardson served as a colonel in the
United States Army during the
War of 1812.
It is a significant piece of
information preserved at the
cemetery. Historians know the
importance to the nation of the
War of 1812. It was known as the
"Second War of Independence."
It was a war fought to keep the
British away, a war that saw the
President's House (White House)
burned, and a war that gave us
the Star Spangled Banner, the
national anthem.
Most important in our quest
to understand Richardson's ar-
rival in Wakulla County could
be that he might have been part
of Gen. Andrew Jackson's rout
of the British at New Orleans
in 1815.
The U.S. victory over the larg-
est naval force in the world at
that time provided the United
States a triumphant boost. The
British would no longer inter-
vene between New Orleans, the
Mississippi River and all lands
north of the 31st parallel and
east to the Atlantic.


It was a different story for the
Indians who were being pushed
south out of the Carolinas into
northern Georgia and who were
being squeezed from the west
along the Mississippi River to
the Apalachicola River into the
Spanish borderlands.
Was Richardson with Gen.
Jackson when he attacked the
Creeks? Was he with the gen-
eral's band that crossed into
Spanish provinces to pursue
the Indians at Miccosukee, and
came to the Spanish fort at San
Marcos to execute two supposed
British sympathizers?
The tombstone gives us dues,
but no immediate answers. The
Wakulla County Historical Soci-
ety has recorded that Sam Rich-
ardson and his wife Susan (also
buried near him) had one of the
largest plantations in the county
with more than 50 slaves.
They too, are buried at the
cemetery. Today, descendants of
the slaves continue to inter fam-
ily members in the segregated
portions of the cemetery.
The cemetery committee
tries to maintain the Richardson
and a couple of other cemeter-
ies. :But there are, according to
Roddenberry, "a good many
graveyards in the county that
have disappeared."
In the past decades, old
grave markers have succumbed
to the weather, machinery, and
mischief. The loss of the graves
and markers is significant to
the descendants, but also to


historians.
A small group of individuals
with a lawnmower gathers an-
nually or when the need arises
to provide care and maintenance
to some of the county's cemeter-
ies. And there. are more coordi-
nated efforts by such groups as
the West Sopchoppy Cemetery
Association and the Crawford-
ville Cemetery Association.
Throughout the world there
are associations who dedicate
themselves to the study of
graveyards. The maps of the
Wakulla cemeteries, many of
which are now part of the coun-
ty's vast conservation areas and
were also plotted by Dr. Andrea
Repp of the National Forest Ser-
vice, confirm areas of scattered
private graveyards.
The settlers who arrived at
St. Marks in the 1820s to build
the ghost town of Magnolia and
those who came west across
the Wakulla River to establish
a couple of large plantations
deserve to be memorialized for
their roles in advancing Wakulla
County.
Yet it seems even more signif-
icant to discover, through their
records, what happened to the
original Creeks and Seminoles
who lived in this area when the
Richardsons arrived sometime
after Florida became a Unites
States territory in 1821.
How were the settlers' ef-
forts hindered by the Seminole
Wars? This cemetery and the
long list of others still around


and some now lost but recorded,
can open vast treasure troves to
researchers.
The cemeteries in Wakulla
County contain the graves of
people of all walks of life.
The Wakulla County His-
torical Society will continue to
maintain the plots. Addition-
ally, the society is interested
in preserving family records
that might become a burden at
private homes over the genera-
tions.'
The society meets every
second Tuesday for a public
program at the library. It is a
good place to come to meet old
and new settlers and to remind
ourselves that our ancestors'
graves are being strangled by
vigorous vines and trees.
There's a message here for
all "newcomers" as well: You
might discover one of the lost
graveyards. Please contact the
sheriff's office so that it can be
recorded.
The archives of all the family
records will be available in the
soon-to-open county archives at
24 High Street, behind the court-
house in Crawfordville.
In the meantime, the soci-
ety's genealogical committee
is researching more about Col.
Richardson. To know which
U.S. Army battalion he was
connected with could solve the
mystery about how he came to
the territory even before the
St. Marks Railroad was built.
Or not.


Angry exchange N.G. Wade vote


Continued from Page 1A
The Comcast camera operator
at the meeting turned on the
camera and sound as Kessler
gave his presentation. Chairman
Brimner, who was still in the
meeting room, went over to the
camera operator and tried to get
him to shut off the broadcast.
"Turn it off," Brimner could
be heard telling the camera oper-
ator, but the operator refused.
"You don't have the author-
ity," citizen Dana Peck called out
to Brimner. Brimner then left the
meeting.
There were a handful of
county staff members in the
pomiand maybe,10 Kessler
supporters as Kessler made his
case for the need to allow impact
fees to remain in place. After
he finished, he took questions
from the audience almost all of
whom were Kessler supporters
and who tossed him questions,
which he had to repeat for the
cable audience and then give
his answers.
Most of the questions came
from Kessler supporters Peck,
Hugh Taylor and Larry Roberts.
Kessler referred to that ques-
tion-and-answer session as be-
ing like one of his town hall
meetings.
When Langston returned to
the room and was informed of
what Kessler had done during
the recess, he confronted his
fellow commissioner at the side
qf the dais and told him in blunt
language what he thought "That
was (expletive) what you just
didi" an angry-looking Langston

said. "Carrying on the meeting
when nobody else was here."
When Kessler started to
answer, Langston cut him off.
"That's bull-l"
When the meeting resumed,
several citizens spoke out against
the board moving Kessler's items
to another part of the meeting.
Peck called it "reprehensible."
At the end of the meeting,
when most of Kessler's support-
ers had already left, the issue of
Kessler's impact fee presentation
came up on the agenda and it
appeared at first that the board
would adjourn without letting
Kessler give his report a second
time.
*"Quite a few people got up
and blistered us for not letting
you speak," Lawhon told Kes-
sler. "It wasn't to shut you up,"
he said, saying it was only that
his comments did not seem ap-
propriate during "Awards and
Presentations."
"Then you went behind our
back," Lawhon. said. "So you've
already had your shot."
It appeared Lawhon had
made a motion to adjourn, sec-
onded by Langston, but Lawhon
clarified and said no, he had
only said that he was going to
adjourn himself. He left. And
Langston announced that he,
too, would be leaving.
Brimner remained, as did
Green, and with a quorum of
three members present, Kessler
gave his report again.

But Brimner said it repre-
sented "closure" for him, having
come on the board four years
ago amid the controversy over
the Wade approval.
That board voted to approve
the controversial development
and it was challenged by the
state, environmental groups and
several citizens and went through
considerable modification before
a settlement agreement was
reached with the parties.
Commissioner Howard Kes-
sler objected to the new sched-
ule,' saying Brimner was "step-.
ping way beyond your bounds"


as chairman.
Brimner said he didn't need
the board's approval to do it,
he just wanted to know if there
were any major objections. When
Kessler persisted in his objec-
tions to procedure, Commis-
sioner Maxie Lawhon made a
motion to change the dates for
the Longleaf hearing, and was
seconded by Commissioner
Brian Langston.
Chuck Hess, of Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla, told board
members that taking such action
gives the "impression you're try-
ing to push it through before you
leave office." He asked that the

War Eagle offense too much for Taylor County, 37-7


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
The Wakulla War Eagle football
team lost several starters to gradu-
ation in May 2008 and Coach Scott
Klees was not quite sure what the
2008 season would bring. After
dropping four contests in the spring
and fall jamborees, Wakulla opened
the new season with a road rout of
Taylor County. The Bulldogs had
little bite in the 37-7 Wakulla victory
Friday, Sept. 5.
"We jumped on them pretty
early and things went our way,"
said Coach Klees. "Momentum is
everything in high school football.
We're excited about the win."


Taylor received a steady dose
of Lorenzo Randolph who scored
three touchdowns including two
rushing and one receiving. Ran-
dolph was the offensive player
of the game with four rushes for
67 yards and one reception for 70
yards for a score from quarterback
Zach Klees.
Zach Klees completed six of nine
passes for 98 yards with one touch-
down and one interception. Quar-
terback Casey Eddinger completed
four of six passes for 45 yards and
a touchdown. Coach Klees said he
will continue to use both quarter-
backs in games although Zach Klees
saw a little more playing time than


Eddinger in Perry.
Klees mixed up the play calling
as Kendrick Hall, Kendell Gavin, E.J.
Forbes, Mookie Forbes, Jamel Gavin,
Randolph and Antonio Kilpatrick all
ran the ball for the War Eagles.
Wilton Booth had two catches
for 12 yards and a touchdown and
Mookie Forbes rushed 10 times for
96 yards and a score.
Catching passes for Wakulla
were E.J. Forbes, Harold Williams,
Booth, Randolph, Lee Smalls, Hall
and Kendell Gavin. Harold Williams
was the offensive knock 'em back
award winner.
The defense played well as Tay-
lor County scored on a kickoff in


the fourth quarter after the score
was already 37-0. Nose guard Matt
Fields was the defensive player of
the game. He had five tackles and
three assists.
Vince Walker had six tackles at
linebacker and Kendell Gavin had
seven tackles and caused a fumble
at linebacker.
"We still have a lot of work to
do," said Klees of his defense.
The coach was pleased with the
placekicking of Morgan Henry who
connected on a 27 yard field goal
and made four of five extra point
attempts. The War Eagles had just
one turnover in the game. Klees
added that the offensive line, which


has been just about completely
rebuilt, played well.
Wakulla will travel to Gene
Cox Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff
on Thursday, Sept. 11, against the
Leon Lions. The Lions were beaten
by Godby in their first game of the
season.
Klees said the Leon squad has
three Division 1 college players at
quarterback, linebacker and wide
receiver and will provide Wakulla
with a good test.
Since Leon had a Thursday game
to start the season, the Lions had
an extra day to prepare for Wakulla
which had one less day to prepare
for the Thursday game.

War Eagle JV loses

heartbreaker to Leon


The Wakulla High School
Junior Varsity football team
lost a heartbreaker against
Leon at J.D. Jones Field on
Wednesday, Sept. 3. The final
score was 21 19 and it was
:the season opening game
-.0bpth teams. Both teams
scored three touchdowns,
but Leon was more efficient
with extra points as Wakulla
missed its second extra point
attempt and had to attempt
a two-point conversion in
the fourth quarter to tie the
game.
The attempt failed and the
War Eagles were unable to
score on their final drive of
the night.
"The extra points hurt us,
but we really lost the game
in the second quarter when
we had two turnovers and
allowed Leon to score two
of their three touchdowns in
less than three minutes," said
Coach Scott Collins.
Will Thomas led the of-
fense with 126 yards on 22
carries. Willie Blake had
seven carries for 55 yards
and two touchdowns and
Deonte Hutchison added a


touchdown run and 47 yards
on six carries. Hutchison
also completed three of five
passes for 43 yards and no
interceptions. Justin Helm-
adollar added 32 yards on
four carries and Evan McCoy
rounded out the rushing
effort with 15 yards on two
carries.
Ivory Guyton caught two
passes for 38 yards and Josh
Wilson had one catch for five
yards.
The defense was led with
a spectacular performance
by linebacker Brandon Busby
who had 22 tackles. Brandon
Carden and Tamarick Holmes
contributed with six tackles
each as the War Eagles lim-
ited Leon to 147 yards of total
offense.
"Our guys fought hard
and statistically deserved to
win the game, but we made
a few costly mistakes that we
hope to bounce back from
this against Rickards," said
Collins.
The J.V. team travels to
Gene Cox Stadium on Thurs-
day, Sept. 11, to take on the
Rickards Raiders.

Wakulla Middle School
topped Howard Middle
School 14-8 in their season
opener on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Wakulla controlled the ball
most of the first half but was
held to only eight points by a
tough Howard defense. Kevin
James and Fred Cummings
proved to be a tough running
duo behind an offensive line
consisting of Sean O'Berry,
Chris Griffin, Kane Gaby, Ca-
leb Brown, Logan Taylor, and
Justin Fisher.
Wakulla's defense held
Howard to one positive yard-
age run and a handful of
broken plays that resulted in
yards gained.
"Our defensive line,


coached by Jordan Brown,
crushed the Howard offen-
sive front," said Coach Bobby
Wells.
Strong performances by
Bradley Brown, Tyrell Gar-
mon, Chris Griffin, Caleb
Brown, Justin Fisher, all con-
tributed to the success of
the defense. Special teams

Brandon Nichols' on-side kick,

by a blocked punt by Justin
Fisher.

School board approves new $58 million budget


By KEITH BLACKMAR
kblackmar@thewakullanews.net
In a public hearing that lasted ap-
proximately one hour Monday, Sept.
8, the Wakulla County School Board
approved a new $58 million budget for
the 2008-2009 school year.
Only two members of the public
spoke about the budget although
there were a number of questions from
former teacher Donna Sanford and
resident Carey Cotton.
The millage rate jumped from 8.079
mills in 2007-2008 to 8.146 mills for
2008-2009. The total budget decreased
from $76,175,121 last year to $58,943,651
this year. The reduction was related to


budget cuts and the conclusion of the
construction project for the Riversink
Elementary School.
Sanford questioned a number of
items including insurance, school
board and superintendent fees and
dues and the amount of money spent
on students.
Sanford asked the board members
to cut back on expenses and reduce the
administrative staff.
"I'm very upset," she said. "We could
cut back on administration and school
board expenses. There are people (tax-
payers) who are hurting out there."
Assistant Superintendent for Fi-
nance Jimmie Dugger defended the


school board budget and attempted
to explain each line item Sanford
questioned.
Superintendent David Miller said
the school board's careful planning
helped build a $4 million reserve that
the board was able to cut into this year
to avoid personnel cuts.
Dugger said the district has received
positive audit reports from both CPA
James Moore and Company and the
state Auditor General.
Being fiscally conservative, said
Miller, helped the district build the
reserve along with student growth in
the school district.
"I'm thankful that we have that re-


serve," said Miller. "We've protected the
classroom. We haven't had to do what
other districts have had to do."
When Cotton questioned the re-
serve amount, Miller and Dugger said
the reserve has been sliced to $2 million
for the present budget year.
"I'm worried," said school board
member Greg Thomas of the new bud-
get and economic conditions around
the country. He added that the state
may cut the county funding more later
in the fall.
The length of the economic down-
turn will determine how hard hit the
district will be and how quickly the dis-
trict can recover, Thomas concluded.


The school board approved the mill-
age rate and budget unanimously.
In a related matter, the school
board held an executive session fol-
lowing the board meeting to discuss
the teacher contract. Representatives
from the Wakulla Classroom Teachers
Association (WCTA) attended the board
meeting.
Dugger said the two sides have
held one meeting and are not close to
finalizing a contract with a new salary
schedule.
The teachers are being paid through
the 2007-2008 salary schedule and will
continue to be paid in this method until
a new agreement is signed.


District celebrates grandparents


When the calendar noted
Sunday, Sept. 7, as National
Grandparents Day the Wakulla
Pre-K center organized a spe-
cial event. Pre-K grandparents
were honored with an ice-
cream party hosted by their
grandchildren last week.
"Paying tribute to our
grandparents is important.
Our Pre-K students spent
time this week making gifts '
that include their handprints
and blooming flowers with ..
their pictures," Pre-K Principal [
Kim Dutton said. "Our Pre-K
is expanding parent involve-
ment this year to include
grandparents and extended
family members. We also .E.
have a newly established PTA Domi
at Pre-K."
Elaine Washington, Brianna stude
Marie Williams' grandmother, eat h
was delighted to take a little Piece
time off work and share it with give l
her granddaughter. "When perin
Brianna saw me she jumped "Qua
into my arms and sweetly said with

Forty individuals recently
attended sub-solutions training
at the school district office. Par-
ticipants included out-of-state
retired school teachers, college
students, individuals seeking
part-time work and those who
aspire to be school teachers.
The training included class-
room management techniques,
instructional strategies, the


code of ethics, confidentiality,
and basic training on being a
prepared professional substitute
school teacher.
"Your role is important to
the success of our school dis-
trict," Superintendent David
Miller said. "We appreciate the
flexibility, expertise and profes-
sionalism each of you brings to
our classrooms."


"In today's schools, we can-
not afford to lose instructional
momentum, even when a teach-
er is out sick," said HR Director
Karen Wells. "The purpose of the
substitute teacher training is to
provide tools, resources and tips
that set our substitute teachers
up for success." For more, visit

Why are pets brought to shelter?

CHAT

Tai

Heide Clifton

Why do people turn in their
own animal to an animal shel-
ter? There are many reasons.
Some of them valid, most of
them are not. Bringing a seven
month old Lab to the shelter
because he is too rough with
the children, makes me won-
der. Labs and some other large
breeds take a couple of years
to mature. Just like human
babies, puppies do not come
trained. Many dogs are bought
or adopted, put in the backyard
by their owners, seldom looked
at or handled, and they hope
for the best. Unfortunately,
that is not the way it works.


An animal needs training in
order to fit into the family and
many people just do not know
how or do not want to spend
the time to at least teach their
animal the most basic things,
There are thousands of books
on dog training and TV shows
about training your dog. Very
inexpensive obedience classes
are offered by PETCO and
PETSMART. Training is a vital
part of raising a happy, healthy
dog. Walking on a leash and be-
ing housetrained are essential.
In the wild, a dog's survival
depends on a strong, stable
and organized pack where
every member follows the
rules established by the pack
leader. The pack instinct is the
strongest natural motivator for
a dog. In every group of dogs,
there is one leader, a head
honcho, commonly known as
the Alpha dog. An Alpha dog
can be male or female. Many
aspects of pack behavior are


controlled by the Alpha dog,
including hunting, eating, and
sleeping. Pack order is based
oni leadership. The Alpha dog
tells the other dogs what to do
and disciplines them, and in
turn, they look up to him and
respect him.
Dogs view any family, canine
or human, as a pack. Therefore,
if you become the Alpha to your
dog, he will respect your wishes
and accept your training and
commands.
If you train your animal,
there will seldom be a need
to turn it in to a shelter where
it will face a very uncertain
future.
Please, have your animals
spayed/neutered. For assis-
tance call the CHAT Adoption
Center at the Wakulla Animal
Shelter at 926-0890. Visit our
website to see what is avail-
able for adoption at the shelter.

On Thursday, Sept. 11, the
library's new flag pole, donated
by the Woodmen of the World,
will be dedicated in a special
ceremony beginning at -10:30
a.m. The public is invited to at-
tend this special event.
Also on Thursday, the public
is invited to attend a presenta-
tion about the "Florida Friendly
Yards and Neighborhood Pro-
gram." The program will be pre-
sented by Glen Mayne, Master
Gardner with the Leon County
Extension Office. The program
is sponsored by the Sarracencia
Chapter of the Florida Native
Plant Society who meet at the
library and present informative
programs the second Thursday
of each month. The program
begins at 6:30 p.m.


The program will show
that a properly maintained
Florida-friendly yard can help
homeowners conserve water
and reduce pollution of water
resources. The Florida-friendly
approach to landscaping empha-
sizes nine interrelated principles:
right plant, right place; water ef-
ficiently; fertilize appropriately;
mulch; attract wildlife; manage
yard pests responsibly; recycle;
reduce storm water runoff; and
protect the waterfront.
On Friday, Sept. 12, the li-
brary's Friday Afternoon Book
Club will resume meeting after
a summer hiatus. New members
are welcome to the group which
meets from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The group's first selection
this fall will be Catherine Gold-
hammer's memoir "Still Life
with Chickens: Starting Over in
a House by the Sea." About the
book the author says "I was ren-


ovating a house. I didn't know
that in the process I would also
rebuild my life." This wonder-
fully poetic chronicle of respond-
ing to life's changes should lead
to some great discussions
Their next choice will be the
novel "The Vanishing Point" by
Mary Sharratt.
The Library is starting an-
other Book Discussion Club
that will meet on the fourth
Thursday of the month. If you
are interested in joining this
group, please contact Doug
Jones. The Friends of the Library
support library book groups
by purchasing the books and
making them available to par-
ticipants at cost.

Well, yes, pretty much It's
vitally important to make
sure all our residents know
that litter, anywhere close
to the shore could end up in
Apalachee Bay, Litter is blown
by the breeze, it drifts to the
bay in ditches, and it is often
simply thrown into the sea.
When our young people see
so many volunteers picking
up trash around our coastline,
they know something impor-
tant is happening.
This knowledge is great
education. Asking children
to pick up cigarette butts is
education, too.
Did you know that 33 per-
cent of all the items we pick
up at Coastal Cleanups are cig-
arette butts and objects which
reflect smoking activities?
Yes, of all items collected
in more than 75 countries and
tallied up by the Ocean Con-
servancy. cigarette butts are at
the top of the Dirty Dozen list.
This is why at KWCB began
the program called "Weigh
Your Butts." Children pick up
cigarette butts and we offer
cash prizes for those who col-
lect the most.
After we work picking up
trash, around 10:30 a.m., we
meet at Woolley Park in Pana-
cea for a hot dog lunch, T-


shirts, the Weigh-Your-Butts
contest, and Litter Loot. Also,
at this time, Jack and Anne
Rudloe are giving our volun-
teers free passes (as they have
for many years) to visit Gulf
Specimen Marine Lab.
People who were first in
line to eat have a bit of a wait
while others eat, so we'll have
educational booths for them
to explore.
At a time when hurricanes
seem to be popping up one
after another in the Gulf, we
decided to offer information
on several kinds of emergency
and standard services avail-
able in Wakulla County.
Sheriff David Harvey is go-
ing to bring the "Intimidator."
That's the fast, black Monte
Carlo purchased by a Depart-
ment of Transportation grant.
Sheriff Harvey will be available
to help our young folks into
the car and to demonstrate
some of its equipment. The
Intimidator does more than
just catch speeders. Lt. Mike
Helms uses it to teach classes
on driving safety. Recently, at
a Wal-Mart event, Lt. Helms in-
structed parents on the proper
way to install baby seats and
the sheriff's office gave away
many of these seats.
Another grant brought the
sheriffs office a motorcycle,
which is, like the Intimidator,
used to teach safety. Although
Florida does not have a hel-
met law, the sheriff's office
strongly suggests wearing
them. Motorcycles are chil-
dren-magnets and our young
ones will really enjoy seeing

veloped the Mounted Posse
last year. Honorary Captain
Harriss Johnson leads this
posse. We're fortunate he's
helping us now, because he
was formerly in charge of the
Leon County Sheriff's Office's
Mounted Posse. The Mounted
Posse is composed of people
who volunteer for this service
to our community. They even
bring their own horses.

A recent call came on a Satur-

KEEPING WAKULLA COUNTY








When I first became your sheriff, Wakulla County was one of the
safest counties in Florida. Over the years our community has grown
significantly... but I am pleased to let you know that our county is
still one of the safest in the state. As your sheriff, it's my job to keep
you safe and I am proud of the work we have done for you.

Crime is Down
* The overall crime RATE is down 28% over the past 5 years, according to
the FDLE Uniform Crime Report.
* The ACTUAL number of indexed crimes from 5 years ago is down by over
100 reportable crimes.
* Our community is still one of the safest in the state.
Population is Growing
* Our population has soared by nearly 20% in the past five years.
" In the past five years, our calls for service have more than doubled from
30,300 in 2002 to 60,700 last year.
Costs are Low
" Our per capital cost to the citizen is about $175 per person.
* That is less than the cost of law enforcement in Franklin, Gadsden, Jeffer-
son, Taylor or Leon counties.

Fishermen hurt by gas prices, heat, too many hurricanes


From The Dock
BY CAPT. JODY CAMPBELL


As I'm writing the fishing
article this week Hurricane Ike
is passing through Cuba and
all of the computer models
have it going west to Texas
or Mexico. Hopefully it will
continue on that path and
come ashore where there isn't
anything. One of the best web
sites I have found to track the
hurricanes and keep up with
day to day weather is www.


weatherunderground.com.
The weather this weekend
was absolutely beautiful and
the seas were flat in the morn-
ing. The wind picked up in the
afternoon. The water is still
the color of five day old coffee
and I imagine it's going to stay
that way for quite a while.
Mike Hopkins said only a
few people are fishing right
now and those who are grou-


per fishing are catching lots of
grouper, but most are small.
Mike said Dog Island Reef is
covered up with small grouper
from about eight to 13 inches
long.
He also said one boat came
in with their limit of cobia and
said they caught 13 overall.
Another boat said they had
their limit and caught five.
Both boats said they saw some
fish in the 80 pound range, but
the biggest they caught were
around 40 pounds.
They also caught a big tig-
ershark and big hammerhead.
Inshore for trout is fair and red
fishing is about the same.
Capt. Luke Frazier at Ad-
vantage Marine said that
last week he fished with Bud


Canoe found after three years


By TAMMIE BARFIELD
tbarfield@thewakullanews.net
Like many folks living along
the coast during Hurricane
Dennis in 2005, our family
was caught by the surprise of
rapidly rising water in the wee
hours of the morning. We took
a hit from the storm and lost a
lot of personal property. But of
all our losses, which included
everything downstairs, all the
tools and equipment, grills,
mowers, doors and windows,
and more, my husband Tom's,
deepest loss was his. canoe.
He bought the canoe in 1976
and enjoyed countless trips
on many, many rivers, lakes,
streams, and canals. Parting
with it resulting from what we
thought was ultimately poor
judgment was hugely disap-
pointing.
About a month after the
storm, a wildlife officer from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
called us and gave us GPS
coordinates where the canoe
had been spotted. It was un,
believable We were very ex-
cited. With all the clean-up and
repairs underway, it seemed
selfish to make the canoe
rescue a priority, so we didn't
get out there for a couple more
weeks. By that time the canoe
was gone. We continued our
search periodically in the area
of the GPS coordinates, think-
ing if someone hadn't taken it,
one of the other storms of that
year may have relocated it We
never found it. We reported
the registration numbers to
the local authorities and to
FWC in the event it was ever
spotted. Since that time, there
have been times we would be
driving along and would think
we saw it in the back of some-
one's truck or in someone's


Tom Harrington found a long lost friend.


yard. We've even mistaken
boxes and appliances along the
marsh grass for Tom's canoe.
We finally came to grips
with the idea that we would
never get the canoe back when
Wednesday, Sept. 3, three years
and two months later, the Leon
County Sheriff's Office called
Tom and gave him the name
of Rod Lewis who may have
located a canoe with matching
registration numbers. Tom im-
mediately called Lewis and got
all the information from him.
He called his brother, Martin,
to join him in the canoe rescue.


They set out on Goose Creek
Bay to Mensler's Creek, back
into the marshes and along
the tree line in the location
described by the man. And
there it waste Sitting on top of
the marsh grass in perfect con-
dition, well, with the exception
of what appeared to be a dent
from an encounter with either
a tree or a piling. Tom and
Martin pulled our well-traveled
bounty behind the boat back to
our home where hopefully it
will live happily ever after. You
can bet it will be leaving with
us next time.

No deer

disease is

discovered
After extensive testing, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Cdimmission,'(FWC);
has not found any evidence!
of chronic wasting disease
(CWD) in the state's white-
tailed deer population.
The FWC tested 560 free-
ranging deer during the past
year and more than 3,500 deer
during the past six years, with
no CWD-positive results.
"While we can never say
that Florida is entirely free of
the disease without testing ev-
ery deer, this sample size gives
us confidence that if CWD is
present in Florida, it is at low
levels," Dr. Mark Cunningham,
FWC's wildlife veterinarian,
said. "However, even low
numbers of CWD-positive deer
would be cause for concern, so
we plan to continue testing for
the foreseeable future."
CWD is a contagious neuro-
logical disease that has been
found in captive and wild
mule deer, white-tailed deer,
moose and Rocky Mountain
elk within several midwestern
and western states. The dis-
ease causes degeneration of
the brains of infected animals,
resulting in emaciation, abnor-
mal behavior, loss of bodily
functions and death.
Thus far, no southeastern
state, including Florida, has
been hit by the deer disease.
More information about
CWD surveillance in Florida is
available at MyFWC.com/cwd.
The web site also offers links
to wildlife and health agencies
with more in-depth informa-
tion about the disease.

Sheriff's
A county employee who went
to the landfill on Sunday, Sept. 7.
to load his truck for the next day's
work, reported seeing a man walk-
ing away pushing a wheelbarrow
full of scrap metal.
"What are you doing?" the em-
ployee, Dale Mayfield, yelled at the
man, who yelled back at him: "What
are you doing?" When Mayfield
answered that he worked there, the
man left the wheelbarrow and ran
into the tree line.
In a few minutes, the man report-
edly returned and tried to pull the
wheelbarrow in the woods with
him.
Deputy Vicki Mitchell inter-
viewed Mayfield and he said the
man was a suspect in scrap metal
thefts from the landfill and knew
that he lived on Lower Bridge Road
and that a trail through the woods
goes from the landfill to the man's
house.
The man was described as a black
male, 50 to 60 years old, thin build,
about 5 feet, 6 inches in height.
Mayfield reported that the man had
something yellow he was using to
cover himself with in an attempt to
hide his identity.
Deputy Mitchell followed the
trail and found several items that
had reportedly been in the wheel-
barrow: fans, metal frame bed rail,
frames for furniture, motor parts, air
conditioning parts, compressors.
The metal, which the county re-
portedly sells for a profit to support
the landfilljwas recovered, and was
estimated to be worth $100.
A suspect has been identified.
The case is ongoing.
In other activity reported by the


Report
sheriff's office this week:
A woman on Crestwood Drive
called on Wednesday, Sept. 3, to
report a possible burgary and theft
at her home the day before.
The woman said that she came
home on Tuesday, Sept. 2, and found
numerous items missing from her
home, including an antique butter
churn, a sewing machine and wood-
burning stove. She also said that
$160 in bills and change was miss-
ing, as well as a heart-shaped brooch
with diamonds and rubies.
The stove had been on her porch,
but the other items were inside the
home. The total value of the items
was $2,150. Deputy Andree Brown
investigated.
A warrant, was issued for a
man for dealing in stolen property
for allegedly stealing a wrecked car
from Carrabelle and then selling it
to a Crawfordvile business.
According to the offense report,
on Friday, Sept. 5, Detective Scott
Powell received a call from an in-
vestigator with the Carrabelle Police
looking into the report of the stolen
car, and that it may have been sold
for scrap. The car, a wrecked 1989
Cadillac sedan that didn't run, had
been reported taken from a Car-
rabelle home on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
The owner of the car reported that
a Crawfordville man who is known
to sell scrap metal to salvage yards
would frequently stop by the house
to ask about purchasing the car. He
was refused every time.
Detective Powell checked with
local businesses and found that
Allen's Auto owner Hollis Hopkins
said he had recently bought a white
Cadillac from the suspect in the case


for $300. The suspect reportedly said
that he had purchased the car for
$100 from a man in Carrabelle and
was in the process of getting a bill of
sale. The suspect had never returned
with the bill of sale.
A detective with the Leon
County Sheriff's Office contacted
Detective Scott Rojas about a report
of stolen checks. Six of the stolen
checks were reportedly used at the
Crawfordville Wal-Mart.
Two checks were used at the store
on July 29 for a total of $562, and the
next day, four checks were used for
more than $940. In addition to those
purchase amounts, each check was
returned with a $25 fee, which adds
up to more than $1,600.
Detective Rojas contacted the loss
prevention office at Wal-Mart and
got video of the six purchases, as
well as receipts for the purchases.
The review of the video and a check
of the identification used allegedly
indicated that the checks were used
by the 24-year-old daughter of the
woman whose checks were stolen.
A man arrested for DUI on
Thursday, Sept. 4, was tasered
after he refused to be taken into
custody.
Deputy Ben Steinle reported that,
around 11 p.m., he saw a car swerv-
ing on Trice Lane, in a back-and-forth
motion like a race driver warming up
his tires. As the car approached the
deputy, Steinle reported that he had
to take evasive action to prevent a
collision when the vehicle swerved
into;his lane.
He conducted a traffic stop, and
the driver reportedly slowly got out
of the truck and went to the front,
using the body of the vehicle for


support, and then began to throw
up. The man, Andrew Jones, 21,
of Crawfordville, reportedly had a
strong odor of alcohol on him,
Jones reportedly agreed to do
field sobriety tests, saying, "I'm not
drunk." He allegedly failed the first
test, and when the deputy went to
another exercise, the one-leg stand,
Jones said he couldn't do it. Steinle's
report quotes Jones and allegedly
saying: "'I can't even do that if' and
then paused."
After allegedly failing two more
exercises, the deputy advised Jones
he was being placed under arrest for
DUI. Jones reportedly answered that
he was not going to jail. "He then
began to clinch his fists and started
to straighten his arms," the report
states. "I advised Mr. Jones that if
he would not obey my commands I
would be required to use force. He
then stated, 'You aren't taking me to
jail.' I then deployed my taser (and)
Mr. Jones immediately dropped to
the ground."
Jones was checked at the EMS
rescue station and the probes were
removed and he was then trans-
ported to jail. Breathalyzer results
allegedly showed a .172 and .167
blood alcohol level. In Florida, .08
is legally drunk.
A woman on Sink Drive re-
ported the theft of her truck on
Thursday, Sept. 4.
Deputy Steinle was dispatched to
the scene where the woman said her
black 2004 GMC Canyon extended
cab was at home when she left for
work the day before, and when she
got home from work later that eve-
ning, the truck was gone.
She said she did not report the


vehicle stolen right away because
she assumed her roommate, a man
who has been living with her for a
few weeks, had taken it and would
return it soon. She had not seen
or heard from her roommate since
that evening. The woman said she
thought he may have gone to Tay-
lor County or might have gone to
California, since that's where he's "
from.
The truck had a yellow smiley
face sticker on the tailgate and a
"Willkillya County" tag on the back
window.
Deputy Andree Brown was
dispatched to Oakmont Drive on.
Monday, Sept. 8, where a woman re-
ported missing prescription medica-
tions after allowing some neighbors
to use her shower.
The woman said two women who
live on the street came over and
asked to use her shower because
they had no power. The woman al- "
lowed them in and fed them.
Shortly after they left, the woman
found four bottles of her medica-
tions missing.
A woman on Franola Street re-
ported a burglary on Monday, Sept.
8, in which only prescription drugs
were taken.
The victim said she left her house 6
for an hour and when she came
back, she found her door had been
pried open.
The sheriff's office reported 794
calls for service this week.

Fire Rescue Report


Be prepared.
September has really seen
the tropics pick up with inten-
sity. Be prepared now for the
next storm. Don't wait until
there is an evacuation notice
given to get prepared. Here
are a few things to keep in
mind if a tropical storm ap-
proaches our area.
Do not use candles for
lighting. Instead use flash-
lights and have extra batter-
ies.
Do not use charcoal inside,
even in a fireplace. It will give
off carbon monoxide and that


can kill you.
Do not leave pets if you
have to evacuate. Take them
with you. There are shelters
that are pet friendly.
Have enough food and wa-
ter on hand for at least three
days. This includes having
water for pets. Refill prescrip-
tions ahead of time.
Have a plan and let some-
one out of the evacuation area
know where you are headed
and where you wind up.
If you stay, don't venture
out until there is an all clear.
Lines will be down. Don't


cross water of unknown
depth. Turn around, don't
drown.
Have a weather radio ready.
Remember if there is a major
storm and evacuations are
called for, you could wind up
on your own until units can
work their way back into the
county.

SA Life in Law Enforcement:

What does it take?

by Charlie Creel


As a teenager in Tallahassee in
the 1960s, I worked weekends and
summers pumping gas (before self-
serve gas stations came along), cleaning
windshields, checking oil levels and
tire pressure. Most days Highway
Patrolmen stopped by the station, and
I got to hear their amazing stories. It
was then that I knew I
wanted to be a Trooper, I havi
too. pass
When I turned 21, dedical
I was accepted for law men an
enforcement training by feel ev
the Florida Highway Patrol they put

though the curriculum
varies at the academy, all Florida law
enforcement officers must successfully
complete a core set of courses approved
by the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement in order to receive their
Florida Criminal Justice Standards
ind Training Commission Certificate.
Without a certificate, no one, except
elected officials, can perform as a state
or local law enforcement officer.
On the job, I learned quickly that
being a professional law enforcement
officer is a very demanding career.
Our troopers, deputies, and local
police officers take an oath to provide
protection for each and every one of
you every hour of every day. When
you and your family are home in bed
on cold winter nights, our officers are
watching over you. When you are
with your families on the holidays,
our officers are away from theirs,
protecting you.
Troopers, deputies, and police
officers work shifts, nights, weekends,
holidays, week in, week out, year after
year, to make sure they are there for
you when you need them. And they

I have felt the passion and
dedication these men and women feel
every day as they put their lives on the
line. I know what it is like to walk in
the footsteps of an officer on the street,
enter a building not knowing what is
around the corner, stare at the barrel
of a gun pointed at me, track fugitives
in the woods, and do the unthinkable:
tell a family their loved one won't be

I also know what it is like to look into

Still more Letters to the Editor


We must protect Wakulla River from trash Be prepared when


Editor, The News;
I would like to help a local
ecosystem that is near and
dear to my heart. My name
is Ed Walker and I'm writing
this to ask for help from all the
people who use the Wakulla
River.
If you use the river for
swimming, boating, fishing, tub-
ing, canoeing or just relaxing
and taking in the beauty of
the river, I ask you to please
take what you brought with
you to this wonderful river
back home.

you.
If we all do our part to keep
this beautiful ecosystem clean
we will reap the rewards for
years. Our children and their
children will also be rewarded,

the people who do as I do and

Mosquitoes become part of our lives


Editor, The News:
This is an open letter to
all five Wakulla County Com-
missioners, concerning a very
serious health hazard. MOS-
QUITOES!!
I realize that this is a county-
wide problem right now, espe-
cially after the heavy rainfall,
but we have a situation in Aqua
de Vida Subdivision in Panacea
that is unique.
This is a 59-year-old subdi-
vision that had culverts that
drained and roads that were
stabilized.
The grader operator could
pull the ditches and keep the
road beds in reasonable condi-
tion. In 1989, our sewer system
was installed right down the
middle of these dirt streets.
In order to get these gravity
flow lines to a depth that they
could function, the roads were
virtually obliterated.
The stabilized roads were no
longer as they once were. We
had plain dirt roads without
culverts in others. We were left


with a great big problem. When
the rains came, the ditches
could no longer drain.
When the hurricanes came,
these low dirt roads allowed
water to go where it had never
flowed, and once it was there,
it remained, because it could
not recede after the tides went
out.
During the heavy rainfall
after Tropical Storm Fay, we
watched the water course over
these dirt streets at their lowest
points because of insufficient
culverts or stopped up pipes.
When the remaining water
can't recede, it becomes stag-
nant and an ideal mosquito
breeding ground.
This past weekend we were
breathing mosquitoes into our
lungs. We couldn't open the
doors to our homes or cars
without compromising our
safety. The mosquitoes that
didn't fly in past you, were
sucking your blood as you
transported them. They were
super-sized mosquitos. If you


get away from the breeze of
the bay, the attacks worsen.
If you disturb a shrub, you're
attacked.
The media recently reported
a confirmed case of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis in Tal-
lahassee. This is too close for
comfort
We know that the county
commission no longer has
mosquito control, but you com-
missioners can direct the State
Health Department to respond
to the plight of our citizens who
know a health risk when they
see one.
When our east-west, three
streets were paved between
Highway 98 and Clark Drive,
a few years ago we were ex-
tremely grateful. We just wish
drainage had been addressed.
Our grader operator does
a wonderful job trying to pull
these ditches, but he has noth-
ing to work with.
The real estate market is the
worst it has been in years. Our
dirt roads are the worst they've


been in years, and the taxes on
these small undeveloped lots
along these deplorable dirt
roads are higher than they were
when the real estate market
was booming.
The taxes are higher on lots
on dirt roads in this old subdivi-
sion than lots on paved streets.
I would suggest that some
of our tax dollars be directed
toward culverts and road sta-
bilization in the Aqua de Vida
Subdivision in Panacea.
This is a serious health
hazard that can be corrected.
I would be glad to personally
guide you to the trouble spots
if you'd care to give me a call
at 984-5664.
This letter voices the senti-
ments of many of my neighbors
as well as my family. Time is
of the essence since hurricane
season is upon us.
We need some relief. Please
help us.

Jenny Brock will get my vote on Nov. 4


Editor, Wakulla News:
Commissioners are dodging
the Comprehensive Plan. They
want us to believe this is because
the plan will stop development,
but these are the facts: Last Janu-
ary, they voted "on our behalf"
to approve language in the Comp
Plan that doesn't stop develop-
ment
Nine months ago, they ap-
proved certain development
policies that give the county a
road map to the future.
They are to be congratulated
for hiring a development director
with the credentials to lead us
through this quagmire. But even
the smartest and best employees


cannot go on to make our county
great. Why? Because there is a
lack of guidance. Thankfully, the
three commissioners who have
consistently avoided providing
this guidance are leaving.
It will take someone like Jenny
Brock to implement some of the
milestones described in this
road map. She attends commis-
sion meetings, knows the issues
and has experienced this lack of
guidance. For example, she has
asked the commissioners when
a stormwater management plan
would be put into effect but has
never gotten an answer.
How many of you were flood-
ed, or are still flooded, even


though you don't live near any
creeks or rivers? Jenny Brock
knows that a stormwater manage-
ment plan is necessary for good
development She has seen how
the water runs off a neighbor's
lot onto the adjacent one. Fill dirt
was allowed because there is no
stormwater management plan.
Jenny Brock has the ability to
guide the planning process so
property doesn't flood every time
a bad development decision puts
us in jeopardy.
The rains will stop, but they'll
be back. We need Jenny Brock
to fix what should have been
done years ago, and to lead the
county commission by providing

Editor, The News:
As a pollworker, I wish to
address voter complaints dur-
ing elections.
The most common gripe is
long lines, followed by long
waiting at the registry books
to sign in. Be prepared when
you come to the polling place
with your picture identification
with signature card ready. You
do not need your voter register
card.
If a voter has not studied the
ballot or read and understood
the Constitutional Amend-
ments in advance of arriving
at the polling place, it will slow
down the voting process. The
November ballot will be very
long with several new Amend-
ments on it. If you wait until
you come to vote to read this
ballot, it will take much more
time, causing long lines and
waiting.
Poll workers are not allowed
to answer questions about is-
sues or candidates. If you do
not understand the Amend-
ments or know the candidates
on the ballot, the voter can
leave them blank, not voted.
You are well advised to read
and ask questions about the
Amendments before arriving
at your polling place.
It is against the law to vote


the polls
outside of your precinct. If you
have moved without report-
ing your change of address,
you will have to do paperwork
before you can vote or worse
yet, drive to another precinct
to vote.
Name changes also require
paperwork before voting. If
you come to vote and do not
have proper identification,
more paperwork is required. In
some cases you will be allowed
to vote, but only a provisional
ballot.
So voters, please consider
these items when you get frus-
trated or angry due to the hold-
ups or long lines. Remember
that most of the responsibility
belongs to the voter to keep
things going smoothly.
Poll workers are usually
your neighbors who volunteer
or are retired citizens. They are
not trying to steal the election
or stop you from voting. They
are just following the rules
required to keep our elections
honest and true.
The fastest and easiest way
to vote is to take advantage
of the 12 days before every
election and vote early. You
can also vote absentee ballot
by mail.

Thank you for support


Editor, The News:
I would like to take this op-
portunity to thank the citizens
of Wakulla County for your
votes and support While I am
humbled by your kindness and
friendship I am energized and
enthused as we begin the final
lap of this race.
When I began this journey to
become your Supervisor of Elec-
tions I did so with much consid-
eration and prayer. This has been
an exciting and very worthwhile
experience. I am so thankful for
the people I have met and the
hew bonds of friendship.


I am very honored and ex-
cited to be able to represent the
Wakulla County Democratic Party
in November. As the Democratic
nominee for the Supervisor of
Elections, I pledge to continue
our campaign with character and
integrity. I urge each of you to
step forward, and let your voice
be heard through our voting
process in November 2008.
I would like to thank all-the
candidates for their patriotism
and willingness to serve the
citizens of Wakulla County.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foun-
dation (CFF) is the leading
organization devoted to curing
and controlling cystic fibrosis
(CF), a life shortening genetic
disease that affects the lungs
and digestive system causing
serious complications.
The CFF is recognized as one
of the most efficient charities
in the country. The foundation
received a coveted 4-star rating
for sound fiscal management
from Charity Navigator, the
largest charity evaluator in


the United States. According
to Charity Navigator, the CFF
demonstrates excellence in fis-
cal responsibility and outper-
forms a majority of nonprofit
organizations in America with
respect to fiscal management.
Nearly 90 cents on the dollar
raised by the CFF is available
to fund cystic fibrosis research
and care programs.
With the support of the
CFF, there have been signifi-
cant advances in CF research
and care. The median survival
age has improved from early
childhood in the 1950s to 38
years today. After more than
50 years of service, the CFF
remains committed to its core
mission: to assure a means to
cure and control cystic fibrosis
and to improve the quality of
life for those with the disease.

Happy workers: Despite economy, workers' spirits

Notwithstanding a slump-
ing housing market, surging
energy prices and a fluctuat-
ing stock market, nearly two-
thirds of employed Americans
say they are happy at work,
according to a recent survey.
The 65 percent of content U.S.
workers is up slightly from the
61 percent who said they were
happy in their jobs last year.
While the annual SnagA-


piness is trending upwards
slightly, the U.S. labor force is
expressing marked concern
over the nation's economy. Six
in 10 (57%) working Americans
say that the economy is the
most important issue facing
the country today, a dramatic
year-over-year increase from
the two in 10 workers (18%)
who said it was the most im-
portant issue in 2007.

year ago. But given workers'
substantial concern for the
current economy, healthcare
and war have now dropped
to 10 percent and 8 percent,
respectively, in the 2008 sur-
vey.
"This year, it's encourag-
ing to see that the majority
of hourly and salaried, em-
ployees are still heading to
work each day with positive
feelings, especially in light of


high gas prices, a mortgage
crisis and months of overall
job losses," said Shawn Boyer,
chief executive officer of Sna-
gAJob.com, a Web site for
hourly jobs. "And while many
workers are genuinely content
at work, given today's fiscal
climate, I am sure there are
those who believe that simply
having a job is reason enough
to be happy."
By demographics, some


two years, the survey has indi-
cated that workers in the West
are happier than those living
in the Northeast, although
each region is trending hap-
pier. This year, 70 percent of
workers in the West call them-
selves happy, versus 58 per-
cent in the Northeast. These
numbers represent a three
percent increase for the West
and a six percent increase for
the Northeast from 2007.

The unemployment rate was
up in July in Wakulla County,
in the state, and nationally, ac-
cording to the state Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
In Wakulla County in June,
the jobless rate was 4.7 percent
up from 4.3 percent in June, 3.9
percent in May and 3.1 percent
in April. A year ago, July 2007,
local unemployment was 3.2
percent.
State-wide unemployment
was up to 6.1 percent from 5.8
percent in June. The rate repre-
sents 572,000 jobless of a labor
force of 9.3 million people.
In fact, unemployment in
Florida was higher than the
national average for the first
time this year. Nationally,
unemployment was at 5.7 per-
cent in July from 5.5 percent
in June.
Even with the continued
increase, Wakulla County still
continued to have one of
the lowest jobless rates in
the state. Of the 67 counties
in the state, only four had
lower unemployment Walton
County at 3.7 percent, Franklin


and Sumter counties at 4.3
percent, and Monroe County
at 4.6 percent. Okaloosa and
Wakulla counties both had 4.7
percent.
In July, the Wakulla la-
bor force increased to 15,896
people, of which 15,141 were
employed and 755 were un-
employed.
In June, the Wakulla la-
bor force consisted of 15,622
people, of which 14,955 were
employed and 667 were un-
employed.
The number of jobs in the
state were down 96,800 in July
compared to a year ago.
Losses in the construction
industry accounted for 51
percent of the state job losses,
with 79,200 jobs lost, according
to the state.
Education and health servic-
es ranks first among Florida's
major industries in the number
of new jobs, up by 33,600 jobs
over the year. The Agency for
Workforce Innovation attrib-
uted the increase to hospitals
and ambulatory health care
services.
Government also added
new jobs, growing by 14,000


over the year, and leisure and
hospitality added 11,700 jobs.
The Tallahassee Metro-
politan Area, which includes
Wakulla, Leon, Jefferson and
Gadsden counties for the pur-
pose of market analysis, also
had an increase in the overall
unemployment rate in July,
rising to 5.1 percent from 4.5
percent in June. Even with the
increase, the local MSA contin-
ued to have one of the lowest
jobless rates of the 23 MSAs in
the state. Only the Ft. Walton
Beach MSA at 4.7 percent and
the Gainesville MSA at 4.9
percent were lower.
The highest unemployment
in the state was in Hendry
County, where the rate jumped
three percentage points to
13.6 percent in July from 10.4
percent in June. Flagler County
also reported double-digit
unemployment with a jobless
rate of 10.6 percent, up from 8.7
percent in June. The highest
metropolitan unemployment
was Palm Coast MSA, where
the jobless rate jumped two
percentage points to 10.6 per-
cent from 8.5 percent in June.
